Montreal Canadiens power forward Josh Anderson was pulled from Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Calgary Flames with flu-like symptoms, per Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Anderson tested negative for COVID-19 and will be tested again Sunday. He skated 5:39 in eight first-period shifts but did not return to the ice for the second period.

Montreal acquired Anderson in an October trade that sent forward Max Domi and a 2020 third-round pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets. In eight games, Anderson has four goals, an assist and a plus-three rating.
